Promotional Information

The main concern of this book is with those aspects of Augustine's thought which help to answer questions about the purpose of human society.


'This is a fresh ... study of one of Christianity's perennially interesting thinkers.' The Times Literary Supplement 'It is impossible adequately to summarise this book, which well merits full and carefully considered reading.' Journal of Roman Studies "Markus' monograph offers a brilliant introduction to a very subtle aspect of Augustinian thought, and shows once again that the Bishop of Hippo, as in so many other areas, anticipated many of the original insights of modern secularist theology.' Classical Folia
